Shaune has raised the bar at Pastis

Excellent food by Chef Shaune. Service by a witron whose cell phone kept ringing in his pocket was very disturbing. Will got back for Shaune's excellent food and his conversation when coming around to the tables.

I hosted a Saturday lunch for a party of 9. The menu met with everyone's admiration. Service was outstanding. We had opted to sit outside in the winter sun. Heaters were switched on and cold guests were provided with blankets. The selection of beers and wines was incredible, the food was excellent and the service could not have been bettered... More

Since my earlier review, which was mostly negative, I have seen a marked improvement in service at this venue. More than that, the food is becoming more consistent and the quality has improved. I also understand that the breakfast and daytime pub meal menu offer excellent value. I just wish the evening menu offered a few more lighter, better value-for-money... More

I'm struggling here. I've just read a few reviews of Pastis and many I just don't recognise. My wife and I arrived on a busy evening and they managed to accommodate us in the less formal part of the restaurant. The whole place was buzzing. We were seated at the last table in the whole restaurant, near the TV, which... More

Every 6 months or so, we give Pastis a try as we live close by. At best, one meal will be ok with the rest being not good. At worst, all the meals will be poor. I am not sure why we keep going there as it is indeed of a total makeover, a new owner, a new kitchen, a... More

It was cold and rainy on Wednesday afternoon but warm and toasty around the crackling fireplace. Pastis has got a R50 lunch menu in the bar area. It was excellent food with for a wide variety of choices. We had the beef burger and chicken strips and both were great value for money. R100 for two meals - well worth... More

Surely there must be a manager or owner around who cares about what has become of this place!??? I used to frequent Pastis years ago. Many lovely lunches were had and so we decided to go for dinner last night. It was quite a shock. The place is really, REALLY shabby. It is in dire need of a serious scrub... More

We have been to Pastis three or four times a year for the past few years but our last visit was a great disappointment. Firstly the service was extremely slow but worst of all was the quality and quantity of the food. I had an Asian Pork Belly and the other three has Paella. The pork belly was tasteless and... More

The cold winter's evening was perfect for the succulent, tender oxtail; the pork loin, eaten by 2 others was also reported to be good but did not get quite the same rave reviews as the oxtail. We will certainly return to enjoy another delicious evening.
